Basic Info:

  • Excellent place to find first aid kits. Zombies frequently check inside.
  • Portable Generators have a use other than powering the lights and increasing search probability in hospitals. Players with the Surgery Skill can heal for 15 HP if the Hospital has a fueled up Generator.
  • Hospitals can be barricaded normally.
  • Among the internal descriptions found in Hospitals:
    • "...its wards and corridors blackened with the soot of a recent fire"
    • "...its empty wards criss-crossed with snapped quarantine tape."
    • " of the city's psychiatric hospitals."
    • "...dark corridors leading through abandoned wards."
    • "...its emergency room in disarray."
    • "...its lobby covered with quarantine posters."
    • "...a children's hospital with bright murals across the walls. "
    • "The main lobby is riddled with bullet holes."
    • "It was one of the last to be evacuated, and seems to have been cleared out in a hurry."
    • "...a derelict hospital that was closed down years ago."



St. Bartholomew's Hospital is a hospital located in the suburb of Pescodside, close to the eastern outskirts of Malton. Built back in 1958, the hospital was intended to reduce the strain placed on St. Ninian's Hospital to the west, especially during a time when crime rates were high and arson-related fires were common. In recent times St. Bartholomew's Hospital, like many hospitals throughout Malton, suffered greatly during the initial outbreak as many of the infected brought to the hospital as patients died and became zombies within its halls before the medical staff realized the cause of epidemic spreading like wildfire through the suburb. It was not long after that the hospital was overrun. Since that dark day the hospital has seen its share of good and bad fortune. Survivors still cling to the hope that the hospital provides them, staving off the lingering death caused by infection or the injured people who, having survived a zombie attack, stumble into the lobby searching for help.


The staff at St. Bartholomew's Hospital try to always support the following ideals:

  1. To provide medical assistance to anyone and everyone who enters.
  2. To cure the infected.
  3. To keep its doors open to lower level survivors, if possible.

It is asked that survivors please note whether or not there is a portable generator within the hospital, and whether it has fuel or not. As a working portable generator is required for the Surgery skill it is asked the survivors provide support by replacing either the generator when destroyed or refilling its fuel supply when its exhausted. This in turn will allow the medical staff to provide more efficient aid to the injured.

Barricade Policy

This building should be Very Strongly (VS+2) barricaded at all times. This is in accordance with the mutually agreed-upon Pescodside Barricade Plan set forth by local survivor groups and the Dulston Alliance, who routinely work together to monitor that the barricades for this building are at the aforementioned level. This building is meant to serve as a shelter for Malton's inexperienced survivors and entry point into other nearby fortified buildings. As a hospital it is also important that every effort be made to keep an "open door" policy (VS+2 barricades) so that inexperienced survivors can find the medical aid they need.

Survivors who find the building's barricades below their assigned level are asked to assist in raising them back up in order to help ensure the safety of all the survivors staying inside the building. Any survivor found lowering the barricades may be directly "put to the question" by any member of the Dulston Alliance or vigilante-minded survivor if caught in the act. If this happens the accused survivor is required to present a valid reason for their actions or be labeled a zombie spy/death cultist and be judged accordingly. So always be cautious lest you find yourself summarily executed for crimes against humanity.

Survivors are reminded that should any member of the Dulston Alliance who finds the barricades raised higher that Very Strongly without any apparent danger to the building or area they have the authority to lower the barricades back down to Very Strongly in order to restore access to the building from the outside.

It should be noted that if there is trouble in the past assistance has been rendered by the Friends of the Featherstone Library, who are based out of the Featherstone Library (94,16) just a few blocks to the west. Another nearby group is the Malton Fire Department, whose district headquarters are located at Ludwell Lane Fire Station. Survivors should therefore send runners to these locations to request assistance.

September 19th, 2008 - It has been confirmed that St. Bartholomew's Hospital has fallen. I repeat, the hospital has fallen. It's unclear whether FOXHOUND forces inside the hospital managed to initiate their planned operation or not before the barricades came down and the zombies came in.

September 15th, 2008 - FOXHOUND reported that the hospital was under siege and signs pointed to the situation getting worse before it improved. As the Dulston Alliance forces in the area were gearing towards an offensive into southern Dulston it would appear that FOXHOUND was preparing to depart from the hospital.
